The European Union Office in Kosovo/EU Special Representative and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) launched the EU funded “Inter-Community Dialogue through Inclusive Cultural Heritage Preservation” project on 12 July, at the Lumbardhi Cinema in Prizren.

The Inter-Community Dialogue through Inclusive Cultural Heritage Preservation project aims to strengthen inter-community trust and respect for cultural identity and heritage. It does so by engaging all communities in the protection and promotion of Kosovo’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

Working closely with municipal officials, citizens, civil society organisations, and religious communities, this EU funded project is focused on renovation, beautification and rehabilitation of selected sites and aims to raise awareness about cultural diversity, and encourage citizens to protect and preserve cultural heritage.

The project also has a strong youth and women’s engagement component which supports economic empowerment through re-imagining of cultural heritage as means of economic empowerment. The overall aim of the project is to contribute to improved inter-community tolerance and respect for cultural identity and heritage.
